Gold Coast recruiting manager Kall Burns has told AFL.com.au’s Road to the Draft podcast they’re open to negotiations to enable an additional early pick in the National Draft on Wednesday, November 27.
The Suns currently hold picks 15 and 20 which Burns said they’d consider swapping for a top-10 pick, adding to their existing (priority) selections in pick 1 and pick 2.
Pick 20 will be the first pick of the draft’s second round, with those names to be announced on night two (on November 28).
Clubs have until November 22 to lodge their draft pick exchanges.
“We’re open to and have had discussions with clubs who potentially want to split their pick. We’ll work out that,” said Burns.
“Those conversations are constantly happening. And then the trade will open up again as the draft night commences.”
The Suns had three top-10 picks last year and selected Jack Lukosius with pick 2, Izak Rankine (pick 3) and Ben King (pick 6), with the latter playing 14 games this year.
